Have you taken notice to the pleasure and the strain in writing words? To me, the pleasure to connect in the deepest part of your soul with another seems like the closest thing to God. And it’s so important to be clear when choosing words so that others can understand what we feel. Writing a book and blogging have become within reach of most everyone these days. But as an author, I confess that I hesitate to publish even a…..

              I have been very interested in time travel stories and those about life after death, and mysterious, phenomenal happenings from long ago continue to echo on my mind. Since 1976, and to this day, some of my experiences and those of others that I’ve researched remain with me. It’s as though all of this has been going on for a higher purpose, to bring us fully to the present time and prepare us to see that we are not alone, and to share these stories to comfort one another. Mike Dooley, the New York Times…..

“Pray. Period! Don’t expect anything. Or better, expect nothing. Prayer cleanses us of expectations and allows holy will, providence, and life itself an entry. What could be more worth the effort — or the non-effort?” – Thomas Moore I find this quote by far the most powerful saving Grace of the infallible devotion of all traditional prayers. Have you given thought about what your saving prayers are? I am reminded of this even more these days. My wise 90-year-old aunt…..

“She took some of its fruit and ate it; and she also gave some to her husband,  who was with her, and he ate it.” -Genesis 3:6   The Power of Love My parents had been very strict, raising us with morals and values through the word of God, rather than in the ways of the world. Those values stayed with me and I still practice them as much as possible with my own children. I feel blessed that I’ve…..

” We have to imagine being in their heart and walking in their shoes to hear what they are saying.”

With 23 years between my two children, I entered a different world in 1995 when my second child was born, of the demands and responsibilities put upon children from their own parents. Back in 1971, the over-achiever parenting style was unknown by me.  However, as a new old-schooled mom, I was unfamiliar and terribly confused with the aggressive parenting style that I continued to offer my second child similar choices as my first, which initially came from my mother’s devout…..

Seeing Through God’s Eyes
01 Mar

Seeing Through God’s Eyes    No matter how faithful we may be, we cannot always see the full picture or understand why things are happening as they are. We may feel frustrated that our dreams and visions  have been postponed by the immediate needs around us, but once we are able to  expand our spiritual awareness, we become better able to see what has been there all along: God’s vision for us and those around us.   As we stretch…..

Imagine a mother with seventeen children, being aware of one missing child alone in her bedroom for too many hours. She then goes on to make all the necessary arrangements to let this child know that there’s a world outside waiting for her, and needs her. This is just one of the things my mother did for my youngest sister, Shirley, who was fourteen-years-old at the time.  I was married, and with a four-year-old daughter when I received a phone…..

Our Best Role Models I read that the first “Mystery Plays” performed in the early Church, along with the scenes depicted in stained-glass windows, were created for people who could not read or write. The earliest of these plays took place in churches rather than in theaters, with the priests and monks acting out Bible stories. They were performed to allow people to reflect on and be lifted up to a truer understanding of God and how to live. This is similar…..
